The City Museum in Apricena was born from the synergy created by Archeoclub d'Italia, the Municipal Administration, and Gargano National Park Authority.
The seat of Archeoclub d'Italia in Apricena, since its foundation in 1986, worked in the various Municipal Administrations coming one after the other so that the several finds gathered have found an adequate collocation in an emerging City Museum. The constant pressures led, with the past Municipal Administration, to the detection of the premises where it was possible to place the Museum. Such premises, of public property and situated in the historical town center, have been restructured thanks to a targeted funding by Gargano National Park Authority.
Archaeology in Apricena is characterized by the presence of finds covering the whole evolution history of man, with a massive presence of evidences dating back to protohistory.
